If you're running ridges up North in the unforgiving moisture or chasing late season muley's in the snow, with down there's the risk of water/sweat creeping into your vital insulation layer. ClusterLoft is a new insulation that mimics a down cluster and performs unlike previous synthetic options. With a warmth-to-weight ratio equal to 80% of pure down, superior performance under compression and the ability to retain heat when wet, ClusterLoft is an ideal insulator for active backpack hunts.
We set out to design a versatile piece that provides worry-free, dependable warmth all day under the pressures of a pack. Using a durable 30D ripstop shell and strategic wicking evoke panels, our Hybrid ClusterLoft Vest provides essential core protection when the mercury drops.
We're excited to bring ClusterLoft to backpack hunters and look forward to developing more gear utilizing its unique properties and performance.
New ClusterLoft synthetic Insulation. It's superior performance under compression and ability to retain warmth when wet make it ideal for use under a heavy pack.
Strategic wicking Evoke panels provide clean pack contact and prevent the shifting found with slick shell fabrics.
Droptail provides tailbone padding when worn inside a sleeping bag and added protection during seated glassing sessions.
The durable/windproof 30D ripstop shell and snag-free 6 button close can handle the stress beneath a pack.
2 handwarmer pockets + 2 large drop-in interior pockets are ideal for keeping your cold weather/glassing kit organized in one place rolled up in your pack.
Soft jaw-height collar and flexible armhole piping allow you to quickly slam the vest on over either of our jackets when you reach your glassing point. Or layer it under for max heat retention.
Does it stuff into its own pocket?
We suggest you simply compress and roll/fold so that the softshell panels surround the outside. This protects the shell material and allows you to stuff other gear in your pack without risking punctures. -Thanks
